Virtual Tools and Tips

Virtual Tools and Tips

Before attending the NAFA 2020 Virtual Institute & Expo, be sure to read through these tools & tips to make the most out of your experience.

Test Your Equipment in Advance
  • Please test and check your system at least 15 minutes prior to event. This includes your network connection, device battery life, and speakers.

  • We recommend you use a computer or a tablet for the best experience. The system is not responsive on a cell phone.

  • We recommend you use Chrome or Firefox to access the webinar. Other browsers are not compatible with the webinar system.


Control Your Environment as Best You Can
  • Mute other devices that might interfere with your computer audio.

  • Create a learning-conducive environment, eliminating as many distractions as possible. Close out of other tabs and mute notifications, if possible.

  • Prepare your space with anything you may need during the virtual program (appropriate chargers, note-taking materials, water, etc.).


Troubleshooting Technical Difficulties
  • The webinar technology runs on higher bandwidth. Please know that some WiFi connections may be spotty.

  • Some networks cause slides to advance more slowly than others. If your slides are behind or you are having audio issues, please try to refresh the page.

  • If you have any problems within the virtual platform, there will be a Help Desk available during the conference.


Engagement Through the Chat Feature
  • Take note of how the presenter intends to utilize the chat feature. Participate in questions and polls to stay engaged with the session.
  • Questions for the presenters can be submitted through the chat. Chat can also be a great way to engage and connect with other attendees.
